Yes, the AC noise can be a problem at times.  We overcome it by running the TV sound through the surround sound system.  Wont help with the conversation, but with five speakers running, the TV is much easier to hear.

My daughter got upset with this problem with guests when she hosted a party. So she put up a sign above the commode.  Dont know if it helped.  The sign was something like this:

So glad that helped.  Arent I smart? Embarrassed Well, not really.  I had the same problem and The Grand Poobah (Kermit) clued me in.  Great to have this forum to share problems small and big that can be solved.

We have taken three tours through Mexico with Adventure Caravans. We liked the flat car tour so much. We then took the top and bottom copper canyon tour and I think it was even better.  That was in 2009. Felt very safe.   Very good trips

Thanks for the info on the tours.  We too like Adventure Caravans.  The PC makes a great RV to caravan in.  We were at the Spring Mega Rally in Washington D.C. this year.  At the rallies, they have the wagon masters give a PowerPoint travel log on 18 to 20 of their trips.  Mexico was one of them.  Id really like to go, but I dont think I can convince my travel partner.  I was hoping to get some testimonials to gradually change her mind.  We were already signed up for the 32 Day Great River Road and Fall Colors, 9/25/12: http://www.adventurecaravans.com/usa/avc_usa_tours.asp?TCC=32USMIS2012977.

At the rallies they give discounts on any trip and some really good discounts on select trips. We signed up for two more:
41 Day Southern Exposure, 2/28/13: http://www.adventurecaravans.com/usa/avc_usa_tours.asp?TCC=41USSE2012979, and the
49 Day Atlantic Provinces, 07/13/13 http://www.adventurecaravans.com/canada/avc_canada_tours.asp?TCC=49CN2012965

Weve been to many of these places, but the caravans are really great.  All the camping reservations are already made, the pace is mostly leisurely, you see places (especially events) you wouldnt necessarily choose on your own (always great), and do and see things you wouldnt even know to do.  Itd be great to have another PC along on one or more these trips

Hopefully Ill eventually wear down my wife at least maybe if only the Baja trip.

On this thread of maps and where youve been, theres a place I always wanted to go but never made it, Mexico.  We were signed up for the railroad flat car tour through the Cooper Canyon several years ago, but had to cancel.  Now they dont run it any more at all.  My wife now refuses due to the violence wont even go to southern Texas.  I know tour companies are still running caravans to Mexico.  Anyone been there recently, any experience?

DJM, yep, went to Castaway Cay on a Disney Cruise.  As you obviously know, its Disneys private island just for their cruise line.  Its great and didnt really get to spend all the time there we would have liked to.  Took the grandkids one of our best trips.  And they still talk about the trip and want to see the pictures over and over.  ThumbsUp

Heres a variation on a map. For the past 25 (?) years, Ive bought a souvenir hat pin from many of the places we have visited. I found a map printed on cloth on eBay, stretched it over a painters canvas, and mounted it with Velcro on the wall behind the dinette in the slide-out. Makes a good conversation piece and we enjoy looking at it. Weve been to all 50 states (49 by motorhome), several Canadian provinces, Guam, the Caribbean, and several European countries. Plan to visit Newfoundland and Labrador next year.

At about $5 apiece, Im afraid to figure up how much Ive got tied up in it.

We have pads, about 10 square, black composite material. Have needed them on occasion. Stayed at a campground with asphalt back-ins and they required pads to protect from jacks sinking in the asphalt (poor campsite design, but nice campground). Stayed two months in Crystal River, FL. Very  sandy soil and the small jack pads sank immediately. Couldnt have used the jacks without the extra pads. Have used them a few other times on grass sites after rains made the ground soft. Handy to have.

Frankly, I cant remember.  We were staying at Navarre Beach Campground (FL) three years ago and stopped at the Gulf Breeze Camping World for something.  Spotted these on sale impulse buy.  Were not fond of bag chairs and liked these, typical folding chairs but padded.  Theyre comfortable and the right size and color.  Sorry cant be of more help.

mciai2000, heres your solution.  We had the same problem which was that the fan was set to ON rather than to AUTO. Click the button for the fan (first click), then change the fan setting to AUTO. Should work fine. If you use the AC and the fan is set to ON, the fan will run continuously, but will go on and off with the AC if the fan is set to AUTO.

Agree with Echo11. Went to Ford and got the right color and fit. Heavy duty and catch a lot of dirt.

Thanks for the info on tethering and all the detail.  Sounds like the solution!  Ill be heading to the Verizon store.  A big helpful vote for you.   Smile

One time I had outlets with no power when plugged into shore power.  After exhausting all possibilities, I unplugged and started the generator.  All outlets worked.  Confused!  Turned of the generator and plugged into shore power again.  All outlets still worked.  More confused!  But never happened again.  shrug

We usually stay at commercial campgrounds so I can access WiFi.  I run three websites for charity organizations, gratis.  One website requires changes several times a week.  I like to read our local newspaper online daily when traveling as well as internet news and financial websites.  Also, internet banking.  Were currently traveling about 90-100 days out the year, usually weeks at a stretch.  We love state/federal campgrounds, but generally avoid them because of lack of internet access.  We have a Verizon cell phone not a smart phone.  My wife has an iPad.

Soif we want MiFi and switch to a smart phone, preferably Verizon, whats the cost for all this?  Do you have to pay the MiFi cost for the months you dont use it?  Does it work in Canada?  Assume cost-wise you cant just stay connected most of the time as Im accustomed to doing?  Interested in what folks are doing without me have to reinvent the wheel just for me.
